Weekend Wandering

While it was unseasonably warm in Boston over the past few weekends, the freezing cold has sadly finally hit us!  Lucky for me, I went out and enjoyed the gorgeous weather with the newest addition to the Be That Beauty Team, Jillian!  She will be taking over photography this semester as Dannie, who has done Be That Beauty photography in the past, is busy studying abroad in Denmark!

Dresses and jackets are my go to outfit choice!  This jacket and dress, both from Ann Taylor LOFT, are staples in my wardrobe!  I am a firm believer that every girl needs a jean jacket, it goes with almost anything.  Here's a tip too!  This dress didn't come with a belt, and was not advertised with one, but on me I felt like if fell very strange.  I took a chance, belted it, and voila!  If you ever feel a dress is fitting kind of strange, try belting it, you may be pleasantly surprised!

And as always beauties, find your way to add your own spark of style!  Mine, as usual, is the addition of heels!  To me, they embody who I am, and show off my confidence to the fullest!  Go out and be confident beauties!  

And in the spirit of Valentine's Day, don't forget that the most important person in your life is you!  Love yourself first beauties! XOXO

Speak Up and Speak Now

I think you deserve to look back on your life without this chorus of resounding voices saying, I could have, but it’s too late now. So there’s a time for silent, and there’s a time for waiting your turn. But if you know how you feel, and you so clearly know what you need to say, you’ll know it. I don’t think you should wait. I think you should Speak Now.
— Taylor Swift, Speak Now World Tour

One of my true passions is aiding others in discovering their inner confidence.  I myself, used to be the shy girl in the back of the classroom who didn't like to speak, and I have grown into the strong and powerful young business woman that I am today!  One of the hardest lessons that I had to learn was to speak up, and to voice my opinions, which can be one of the hardest skills to master. Once you find your voice and your passion, never let go!  Your voice matters, and what you do with it makes a difference! So c'mon Beauties, let's hear your voice! Be loud and proud!

For this look, I wanted to stand out against the background, and look powerful and strong!  Doing a photo shoot in a park full of strangers definitely takes some guts, but when you love something this much, you do it!  Wine colored pants from LOFT are one of my favorite items for this fall, and how beautiful is that color?!
